(Note: The F700 does not output video in Record mode so some of these screen
shots have been borrowed from our S7000 review and others were photographed
directly off of the camera's LCD screen.)

You can manually select one of 49 focus areas by pressing and holding the C-AF button and moving the AF target marks with the 4-way selector. The screen is divided up into 7 rows by 7 columns and any one of those points can be selected. Note that regardless of the AF focus area, the exposure is always based on the center of the frame.

The Macro mode allows you to shoot from 3.5 to 31.5 inches, flash coverage is good from 11.8 to 31.5 inches. The zoom is fixed in wide angle position but the digital zoom feature can be used.

As with most digicams that offer a movie mode with sound, you cannot zoom during capture but you can set the zoom where you want it before you begin to record.
